Problem with some media keys

Recommended Posts

I'm having trouble using the media keys on my Flirc device on Windows 10 (64 bit).

Keys MediaPlay, MediaFF, MediaRWD work fine, as well as Vol Up, Vol Down, Vol Mute.  However, for some reason the other media keys are showing the wrong keys.

Pressing Play/Pause returns KeyCode 179, Stop is 178, Prev Track is 177, and Next Track is 176.

These KeyCodes are "valid" media keys for Microsoft keyboards, but don't trigger the actual global media keys that my music apps can recognize.  In fact, when I try to force map the keys in the MediaMonkey player, it just calls them all HID Key and considers them undefined keys.

I seem to have solved the issue... The Google Play Music extension in Google Chrome tries to run in the background and was stealing the media keys, preventing other music apps from seeing them.
